The “List of Fake News” Problem
Emma Lindsay

Well said. I quite liked this. I do have one little nitpick: You write that the Huffington Post “did give Hildog a 98% chance of winning the election” as a reason to maybe not trust that publication.

But here’s the thing: they weren’t wrong. HuffPost said that if we were in this scenario 100 times, Trump would win in two of them. So maybe we just happened to be in one of those two. Maybe Hillary did have a 98% chance of winning, but just had terrible luck of the draw. There’s no way to know.

But that’s just my mathy side speaking out. I really did enjoy the entire piece. Especially the “money is fungible” argument. I’m as pro-choice as they come, but that argument PP supporters use never sat well with me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
